Before And After School Care
The Before School Program
The Before School Program offers child care for children in grades K-6. The program runs from 7:00 a.m. through 8:30 a.m. and offers relaxing recreational activities for students. They are bussed from the program to their respective public school classrooms. In the event the Belchertown Public Schools openings are delayed, the before school program will have a one-hour delay regardless of the amount of time the public schools are delayed.
The After School Program
The After School Program provides a safe environment for students in grades K-6, after school. Daily hours are 3:15pm, through 5:30 p.m. Children are bussed from their schools to our program. They are escorted to our program rooms where they are given time for snack, to socialize with friends, help with homework, and the opportunity to participate in enrichment and recreational activities on days when public school is in session.
Vacation & No School Days Program
Additional sign ups are available for days the public school is closed. Please contact us if you want to participate in these programs.
We are beginning to register for fall enrollment for our school age program. We know the 2020-2021 school year has been quite the rollercoaster. We hope 2021-2022 is much more typical. At this time, we are planning to register with the expectation that all students will be in-person and full time in their usual schools. If that changes, we will adapt our programming accordingly. Our before school program will open at 7:00am. Children should arrive by 8:15am to ensure they catch the bus to school. The after school program will run until 5:30pm.
TO SECURE YOUR CHILD’S SLOT IN OUR FALL SCHOOL-AGE PROGRAM, YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
Return a new enrollment form for each child you are enrolling (you may return it to the day school, drop it off or mail it in)
We are waiving the required first-week fees for the start of this school year.
We will be requiring a $50 registration fee per family to secure the placement. Please keep this as a separate check and do not include it with a weekly tuition check.
ALL SPACES ARE FIRST COME – FIRST SERVE.
